Going to a Strip Club Still the Most Popular Stag Night Activity
According to an article on the Huffington Post, a survey was conducted to see what the top stag night activity is. Whether it’s in accordance to tradition or just something that most men want, the number one stag night activity is still going to a strip club.
The survey just goes to show that, for most men, celebrating that last night of freedom will not be complete without going to a strip club. So, for anyone in charge of organizing for that stag party, make sure to include that sort of nighttime activity.
Other Interesting Findings
Aside from the preferred stag night activity, the survey also showed some interesting trivia revealed by technology. Since the survey was conducted by an online stag company, all of this data was relatively easy to collect.
Based on the survey, it was interesting to note that the size of the group was somehow related to the mobile device used to book the party. Stag groups above fifteen people were using iPhones. Groups composed of ten to fifteen people were using either an iPad or Samsung S3. Smaller groups with less than five participants were either using Samsung S2 or Google Nexus.
As for the email used, it was also interesting to note that more than 25% of stags that booked for a night at the strip club used their AOL email to do so. The second and third place were Yahoo and Hotmail email addresses.
Other Popular Stag Night Activities
As mentioned earlier, lap dancing or a night with exotic dancers is the number one stag night activity. Night club guest list, pub crawl, comedy club, and a meal out are the other four most popular stag night activities.
Come to think of it, those are popular hen night activities as well. Though the type of daytime activities may vary greatly, stag and hen nights tend to involve any or some of those top five activities.
Technology can only say so much about what stags actually want. More often than not, the one organizing for the whole occasion is usually the best man or one of the groomsmen and those are simply the activities they choose to include.
Regardless of what the survey shows, the activities included to celebrate a man’s last night of freedom should include the activities that he will actually enjoy. This means choosing activities that he will really enjoy.
If the stag does not even drink, a night pub crawling will not be a good idea. That is why there are other alternative activities to choose from as well.
Stag Nights and the Trouble Adult Establishments Face
A lot of people know that stag nights nowadays tend to be a wild night out with the boys with a “no holds barred” theme going. As that implies, stag groups tend to go to adults establishments and other entertainment centers just to get their fix.
In a way, people celebrate stag parties the same way because that’s how they see it in Hollywood movies. In real life, those adult entertainment establishments get in trouble quite often. Though there are cities tagged as Sin Cities where everything else is legal. In other places, those things just aren’t legal. Even noise can be reason for complaint.
Key West’s Adult Entertainment Club
The Adult Entertainment Club in Key West, located in the United States, a popular stag night stop for a lot of stags, created quite a controversy. For the longest time, Key West held the reputation of a place that tolerates parties where “anything goes.” For that reason, this particular area has been a popular location for a lot of stag and hen parties.
As for that particular establishment, the Adult Entertainment Club also known as the Scrub Club, is actually just one out of many similar clubs in the area which frequented by men. Men visit this club for a lot of reasons. It has seen a lot of stag and divorce parties throughout the year.
Not a lot of people might know that within 756 days, this club has received a total of 301 calls complaining about that club. The main complaint would be the fact that the club bills credit and debit cards without the card holder’s permission. This means thousands of dollars mostly for services not rendered.
Though nightclubs in Europe are not as notorious as this one, such things can still happen whenever men are too drunk to even remember anything. In one Sin City, Amsterdam, some visitors would even say that if you remember what you did that night, you did not truly experience Amsterdam’s nightlife.
Getting totally wasted during a stag party is not even something out of the ordinary. A lot of men even make such an occasion as their excuse to live the life of a bachelor once again. So, even in Europe, men must be aware of such establishments. They may have a good time then, but once their bill comes, they might be as happy.
It has been said that this happens quite often in Riga. With that in mind, it helps to be wary when one celebrates their last night of freedom in other locations as well.
Actually, stags can always find other stag night activities to enjoy during their last night of freedom. How about a more relaxing stag weekend fishing in Carrick on Shannon? Not all stags really wish for that wild night on the town.
As a matter of fact, nowadays, more stags enjoy other activities like go karting, paintballing, quading, clay shooting, or other such activities that do not really involve women. Having a good time does not always require alcohol and women. Stags just have to get the chance to do the things that they really want to have a good time.
Going on a Fishing Trip for Your Stag Weekend
Different stags will celebrate their last night of freedom in different ways. Stags that wish to go fishing for their stag weekend will find so many locations in Ireland that will be perfect for that stag do activity. After all, Ireland is an island. What’s more, there are so many rivers and lakes that flow throughout different counties.
So, for anglers, these are some of the best stag do locations in Ireland. Of course, there will be differences in terms of the location as some are ideal for deep sea fishing and others are perfect for freshwater fishing. It all depends on what sort of trip the stags want.
Carrick on Shannon
Carrick on Shannon is tagged as the Hen Party Capital of Ireland. This small town got that name not because of its lakes, but for the craic to be had in its nightlife scene. Knowing that, this can be the perfect place for stags to spend their last moments of freedom.
During the day, stags can enjoy fishing in some of this town’s lakes. For those that do not know, forty one lakes can be found within a ten kilometer radius from the town proper. Those lakes are the reasons why this relatively small town is the location of various national and international fishing tournaments. This town in County Leitrim really is the ultimate location for freshwater fishing in Ireland.
Stags that have seen the movie Saving Private Ryan would have gotten a glimpse of Wexford’s coast as Curracloe Beach was the shooting location of the movie’s opening scene. Known for miles of coastline, the County town of County Wexford is well-known for its beaches.
In the past, this town used to be a major seaport in its region. Now, the town mainly thrives because of its manufacturing industry. Even so, due to its geographic location, it continues to be one of the best places in Ireland to enjoy deep sea fishing.
While in Wexford, stags can rent boats that come with a captain that can bring them to the best deep sea fishing spots in the area. Equipment can be rented as well, but it does not hurt to bring your own gear.
Other Stag Do Activities
Aside from fishing, there are other stag day activities to enjoy in Carrick on Shannon and Wexford. The fun does not have to end with the biggest catch of the day. There is great craic to be had in both locations and stags can still enjoy their stag night in either town.
As for daytime activities, there are other alternatives too especially for those that will be in town for a stag weekend. Paintballing, clay shooting, quading, go karting, and other popular stag do activities can also be enjoyed in either location.
An added bonus for stags that enjoy waterfowl hunting, Wexford can be the perfect place to enjoy that activity. During hunting season, County Wexford is the migratory stop of thousands of waterfowl. This will include waders, swans, geese, and ducks.
A Stag Party in a Reality TV Show
In a few weeks, the reality television show Geordie Shore will be airing its fifth season. Since the stars are engaged, the viewers will get the chance to witness the groom-to-be and bride-to-be’s stag and hen do in the comfort of their own home.
Everyone that watches MTV in the United Kingdom will know about Geordie Shore. From the show title, you can safely assume that this show is based in Newcastle upon Tyne. It is actually a British adaptation of the American TV show Jersey Shore. Since it premiered last May 24, 2011, it continued to be a big hit, not just in the UK, but all over the world.
Fans Get Up Close and Personal

Fans of the show will really have a lot to look forward to. In the past, the show did go to international locations like Magaluf and even Mexico.
Parties are actually nothing special to this show as the cast is often seen partying everywhere. However, that’s also why fans probably have a lot to look forward to. The stag and hen do celebration of the couple should be even better than their usual parties.
Filming for season five actually started on November 14, 2012. However, the new season will start on February 19, 2013.
A Happily Ever After Ending
Throughout the course of their relationship, fans have seen bride-to-be Vicky argue with her fiancé Ricci. That begs the question, will it be a fairy tale like ending for the couple? Fans will have to wait and see.
Ordinary folks’ stag night activities already affect the relationship in a bad way when the activities are shared on Facebook and Twitter. For this reality TV show couple, it will be even worse as the whole world can actually see them go wild.
Fans even get to see their arguments aired on the television. Such a thing can have a negative effect on their relationship. Still, hopeless romantics would say that… “if they’re meant to be, they’re meant to be together.” Hopefully, they do stay together and get their “happily ever after.”
Television shows and movies tend to have happy endings. Of course, with a reality TV show, it can be quite unpredictable. Fans will have to wait and see what will happen during season five.
